    The Annex is a 2 story 1906 Adirondack 'Camp' in the woods located less than 2 1/2 miles off Exit 26 of U.S. I-87, the Adirondack Northway It is available for weekly rental from mid-May through mid-October. In the heart of the Adirondacks, built in 1906 and filled with original art and assorted antiques, The Annex is a perfect get-away spot for writers, artists, nature enthusiasts, bird and critter watchers (deer, turkeys,foxes pass by: chipmunks, racoons, a groundhog & red & gray squirrels live here) or just plain vacationing couch potatoes. The Annex is a short drive from public beaches on 3 lakes (Schroon, Brant, Loon), has well marked hiking trails nearby and is down the road from Natural Stone Bridge & caves Park, a natural attraction. Just across the road are our 4 acres of private woods. A short meander through the woods brings you to the flat rocks edging Trout Brook where sitting on the rocks or perching on a large fallen tree you can have a picnic lunch and a chance to cool your feet in the bubbly, clear water. The Annex makes a perfect base for day trips, cultural, historical or natural to places like Schroon Lake village, the High Peaks, Lake Placid, the Adirondack Museum, Fort Ticonderoga, Saratoga and, of course, Lake George. Additionally the town of Chester (Pottersville is a hamlet in the town of Chester) has for 2016 just completed the CHESTER CHALLENGE, six new hiking trails of varying difficulty from a stroll to a climb, taking between 45 minutes to 4 hours each and topped by beautiful views of the surrounding lakes and mountains. These are a particularly wonderful activity for September and October as the leaves begin to change. Downstairs, The Annex has an open floor plan with living room, dining area, modernized kitchen (stove/full size refrigerator with freezer/microwave/coffee maker/toaster/toaster oven plus cooking and eating utensils, dishes, mugs and glasses) and bathroom with stall shower. There are two porches:an 8' X 20' open porch with Adirondack chairs faces towards Catamount Loj and a wonderful large (10' x 28' approx.) screened porch with electrical outlets, Adirondack chairs, old-fashioned Adirondack benches plus two tables with chairs. This porch overlooks a small lawn and woods and is great for card playing, reading or enjoying a bug-free outdoors dining experience indoors. On the 2nd floor are four simple bedrooms, two have double beds, two have 'camp double' sized mattresses (approx. 6" narrower than a true double). Each has a bureau, chair and a window looking out on trees. Quilts , sheets and towels are provided. On site cell service is poor (we do have a land line). WI FI access is spotty but there are plenty of books to read (including a collection of Adirondack-themed volumes), boxed board games to play and an assortment of VHS video tapes to watch. The Annex is a real turn-of-the-century (last century, that is) Adirondack guest house. It is for true Adirondack-lovers wanting to 'live rustic' in an icon of local history. Summer is great but late September into October bring color to the mountains and are a hiker or leaf-peeper's delight. (See "Chester Challenge" above). For shop-a-holics, the famous "World's Greatest Garage Sale"is October 1-2, 2016 in Warrensburg, NY (exit 23 on the Northway but the sale spreads north along route 9 as far as Chestertown, exit 25). Easy auto access from Adirondack Northway yet rural with woods and 4 forested private acres on beautiful Trout Brook across the road. Great area for biking and hiking. Bike to Schroon Lake boat launch 3 miles away and take a dip in Schroon River across from the launch or bike along Schroon Lake's east side to Country Store in town of Adirondack. There are numerous marked hiking trails in the area. A mile up the road, is Natural Stone bridge & Caves Park , a geological wonder worth visiting. We're about 7 miles from the Seagle Colony (summer opera) and 20 minutes from the North Creek terminus of the North Creek/Saratoga Railway. There are seasonal concert s and events in Chestertown at Dynamite Hill, the Theater in the Municipal Center and the Carol Theater, at Tannery Pond in North Creek and at the Schroon Lake Boat House and the Strand Theater (films and programs)in Schroon Lake with activities weekly. During the summer season there is an active Farmer's Market every Wednesday in season in Chestertown. 5 miles away. There is virtually no public transportation so a car is essential.. Parking for The Annex is shared with Catamount Loj ,our private home. The Annex is a walk through the yard from the parking area.
